- An Evening with Sissel
Remember the voice of Titanic? The wordless vocals which evoked all
the emotion of the Titanic experience from the best-selling soundtrack
of all time?
Sissel Kyrkjebø (the Norwegian phenom and voice of Titanic) will give
a rare USA concert in the de Jong Concert Hall at Brigham Young
University on Saturday, April 30th at 7:30 pm sponsored by the BYU
Norwegian Scholarship Program.
Many of the songs Sissel sings are sung a cappella.
Tickets will go on sale at the Harris Fine Arts Ticket Office on
Monday, April 4th. The ticket office telephone number is (801)
422-7664. The ticket price is $12.00.
This is a rare opportunity for us in the states to attend a concert
by one of Norway's best and most famous singers.
We hope you will help get the word out and you and your family will
join us for "An Evening with Sissel."
Please forward this to your friends and family!!
